What is this brown discharge?

I'm fourteen, I've never had sex. Never done anything close to it. I have never had my period. But this weird discharge is coming out of my vagina. Its a light brown color, and sometimes  little red is in the brown. It doesnt smell, but along with the light brown is a dark brown thing. They come in chunks, and a are mucusy. Please Help.

Brown is old blood.  You're most likely experiencing your first period.  The "dark brown [mucous] thing" is a clot and nothing to be alarmed about.

If you have been having periods already, you might simply have some residual blood from the last one.  Blood (menstrual fluid also) can clot and the clot come out, if it has been inside you long enough to clot, it will doubtless be either dark red or brown.

How long should this last?

A period can last up to seven days.  Some women do experience longer ones, but this is outside of the average length of 3-7 days.
